Moderation of Real Food

Friday, June 14, 2013

As much as moderation is the key, it should be moderation of all real foods. I understand the want to eat things that are bad for us, but we shouldn't want to eat food that just plain isn't food anymore. Just because something fits the diet you're eating right now doesn't mean you should eat it. If it isn't food, then it really shouldn't be eaten. If you absolutely need to eat those things, then once a year is plenty. Try to give up that which isn't food because it isn't nourishing and energizing your body. It's zapping your energy and depriving you of a higher vibration. Eat living, vibrant food, and your body will thank you.

  • Orange/cucumber/apple juice (64 oz) = 600 calories?

  • 1 pound strawberries = 150 calories

  • 1 large head of broccoli marinated in red wine vinegar and 1 1/2 tbsp EVOO = 250 calories

  • Pizza! Homemade polenta crust, real mozzarella cheese, homemade sauce, and a bunch of veggies. I ate half. = ??? calories
My husband is the bomb in the kitchen, yo.
  • More pizza! This time with a rice flour crust.
Calories: Not sure. Quite a lot though.
Colors: Orange, green, red, yellow
Water: 128 oz (Not enough)
Exercise: A 45 minute walk, C25K - W1D3
Sunshine: 45 minutes
Sleep: 8 solid hours. Whoa.

I went for a walk this morning. It was my new usual path and I ran across something I forgot I did on Monday. On a path between houses, I found some sidewalk chalk and wrote some messages. "You are awesome!" "Have a great day!" "Eat more fruits and veggies!" They were still there this morning when I walked that path, and it made me smile even though I'd written them. Hopefully it did that for some others.

My run today was some great progression too. I'm really enjoying it! It's a lot easier now that I've lost weight. My lungs can handle all the air and my knees don't kill. It's amazing what time and healing can do. Running was never my thing. I have really good running shoes because a while back I wanted to really get into running. It never stuck with me because I was bad at it and didn't like it. But now I'm ready for it. Plus, it means I can eat even more, though I don't know how that'll even be possible.. lol.

Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

It all look sooo yummy! I love that you post pics and recipes. :)

I've never been a runner either until this past year. Good job at keeping at it!

I post a LOT of pictures!! LOL I hope no one gets sick of them. As soon as Josh perfects his pizza recipe, I'll post it up on Meatless Monday.

I'm so excited for running!! Glad you enjoy it too!

I LOVE your pics! ;)

And one thing I really LOVE about following you (You are our leader after all lol) is your attitude. You are so positive, and it's not just a healthier diet you're sharing with us, but a more happier life in all areas.

I used to LOVE to run when I weighed less. I've tried to get back into it many times, but running with extra weight is soooo hard. And sucky. I really admire those people who have lots of weight to loose and run anyway.

Good for you to get into running. It really is an amazing exercise.

Awww thank you!! I took a lot that day! LOL

You are far too kind! But the food really helps me keep such a positive attitude. It's not all the time, and it's also opened me up to many more vulnerabilities, but I enjoy life a lot more this way. :o)

Yay for running!! I didn't know I just needed to lose some weight to actually like it. My run yesterday was much more challenging, but I'm finding that I appreciate the challenge now. :o) I hope you can get back into it!
